Letter: Time to remove President Trump from office

It’s time. The 25th Amendment is there for a reason. The president is blithely babbling about trading deaths for money.

He doesn’t and likely cannot understand that the choice is between a bad economy, with enough healthy people to get it running again, or a bad economy with the country filled with dead, dying and sick citizens who cannot get the economy running again — ever.

This is on Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis. They had a chance to get this mad man out of office and save literally millions of lives.

This crisis won’t go away. Telling people to go back to work will kill many more.

I urge Sen. Burr and Sen. Tillis to do their duty. Start working for this country before we see Russian tanks parked in front of our White House.

History awaits. Either they need to start working for us, and against this corrupt madman who think death is just fine-n-dandy if it means more money for him, or watch as people die all around them. He has no loyalty to anyone but himself.
